    Based on what I'm seeing, I think that we are going to see the Avengers and X-men get there own symbiotes. Perhaps it has something to do with the various codexes, but regardless this story seems pretty interesting. I image that due to his nature toward the Symbiotes, Anti-Venom may play a part in Knull's opposite.

    I honestly hope that they take the chance to bring back other Symbiote wearing characters such as Mania, Hybrid, Payback, Raze, Toxin, Scream, and Anti-Venom. You can even play into Knull's godhood and have him resurrect other deceased Symbiote wearers such as Scorn and other Symbiotes that are indeed dead.

    Imagine this, a symbiote sword from Knull which is literally 1% of him finds a prey and that said "prey" would be then named God-Butcher, he would then feast upon the gods especially Thor and his friends, which by the way Thor is having a HARD time beating the dude (prey). That gives you the gist of how powerful Knull is lol

    Maybe we can bring the King In Black to life. From comic books to the big screen if the character gets popular enough. I like Animae Maybe do a crossover from the Japanese art to marvel characters.

    Honestly, this is the most disappointing work as you guys literally have editorial mistakes on Sentry, and on top of it, you kill the dude who can come back from death when he is erased from history. Thor is nowhere to be seen despite him supposed to be done with his solo adventure. You bring out some Valkyrie out of nowhere and stuff, this is more like fanfiction more than fanfiction itself, I got a feeling there is lacking in communication with writer and editor.

    That said the theme itself not back and Knull is a good character and it was clear you guys want to focus on Venom, Spiderman, and Dylan. However, you better give Sentry redemption you guys done him so dirty in this works. Also, the new Valkyrie better be explained soon.
